KNICKS HOOK A BIG ONE

Amare Stoudemire is gonna be a Knick, $99 million for 5 years.  Hmmmm, I hope they’re not overpaying for the soft big man who plays no defense and loves to shoot jumpers.  Let me not rain on his parade.  I like this move. It brings the team some much needed flash, pizzaz.  It gives them something to sell to Lebron or Wade or some other big free agent. But make not mistake, Amare alone is not enough.  They might, MIGHT make it to the playoffs with a Stoudemire on their roster but they still need a leader. Someone who’s gonna put fear in the opponent’s minds before the season starts.  Also, remember that Amare had Steve Nash in Phoenix.  I’m really interested to see what he does without a top point guard in Nash dropping dimes to him.  It will be a huge mistake if they can’t re-sign PF David Lee.  These two together would create havoc in the front court for any team. Imagine a Lee, Soudemire and Lebron and/or Wade trio.  WOW! Stoudemire can’t sign until Thursday but let’s hope that this isn’t the major move the Knicks have been planning for the past 5 years.

  1. Man I don’t think this is great news for the Knicks. Sure at least they don’t go home empty handed but the fact of the matter in my opinion is that Amare Stoudemire is not going to lead your team to the promised land. It would be good for the NBA if the Knicks can get rolling but i don’t think Amare is the answer to their problem unless they can land a couple other marquee Free Agents.I have a post on this that I wrote last week right after it was reported that they had signed Stoudemire. I want to know your guys’ take on it or make a post that goes more in depth on it something lol.
